I found my third published story from Stories For Children, Who’ll Play With Me?, on this website. I don’t know how it got there but it’s there...
My class did a short Haiku: http://storybird.com/books/ocean-waves-6/?token=dd4bmz
Here is a link to some of the Storybirds we've done:
Today, I went to SCBWI’s Published Pro Think Tank. The presenter, Seattle poet Julie Larios, discussed finding ways to feed your artistic soul. She shared thirteen really cool ways, I’ll share a few of them.
Go cross-discipline: Meaning try new things, they could be music, art, photography, dancing, or another form of art. I did this when my mom gave me my dad’s laptop, after he passed away. Dad had some wonderful pictures on his laptop, so I started writing poems to them. Now I’m really interested into haiku and other poetry. I’ve attended several events and readings in the Seattle area.
Create a playlist: Create a list of songs that you really like and that inspire you. I use Pandora on my Kindle Fire, and listen to it when I’m relaxing, working out, or writing. As I post I’m listening to Random Words, by Amoral…Never heard it before…
I’ll post some more later…
